Generic Conventions
  • Generic conventions influence
  • Setting
  • Characterisation
  • Plot
  • This Presentation will focus on Setting as the
    main effect of genre in texts is on setting. This
    presentation will show you that one story can be
    percieved differently if it were told in a
    different genre. Although the plot does not
    change, your attitude toward the story might.

Childrens Little Red Riding Hood

Setting - Children
  • What does this picture say about the PHYSICAL
    setting?
  • The tone and atmosphere is a happy and joyful
    one. The wolf looks cute and friendly as does the
    scenery, animals and weather.

5
Setting - Children
  • What does this picture say about the CULTURAL
    setting?
  • It is more civilized than barbaric. It is quite
    traditional and hides the nasty side of life. The
    Charatcers way of life seems carefree and
    innocent from this picture.

6
Setting - Children
  • What does this picture say about the SOCIAL/MORAL
    setting?
  • Little Red Riding Hood is the main focus of the
    picture so she would seem to be in possession of
    power, above all other characters.

7
Setting - Children
  • What does this picture say about the HISTORICAL
    setting?
  • Little Red Riding Hood appears to be quite young
    and looking at her clothing, it would be accurate
    to assume that this image is set a while in the
    past. Also from the cottage in the background
    which is not common scenery, particularly in
    Australia today.

Horror Little Red Riding Hood
9
Setting - Horror
  • What does this picture say about the PHYSICAL
    setting?
  • The tone and atmosphere is a grim and fearsome
    one as there seems to be a cemetery behind her.
    The scenery is dark and bleak with a misty hue to
    signify mystery or lurking. There is no light
    on Little Red Riding Hood to suggest safety or
    happiness for her.

10
Setting - Horror
  • What does this picture say about the CULTURAL
    setting?
  • It is more barbaric than civilized. It has a more
    modern feel and brings into light the darker more
    evil side of life. The Characters way of life
    seems scared and alone from this picture.

11
Setting - Horror
  • What does this picture say about the SOCIAL/MORAL
    setting?
  • In this picture, Little Red Riding Hood appears
    to be at the mercy of the forest that is bearing
    down on her. She is shadowed by the trees
    implying that evil will come out of it. She does
    not have power in this image, but it is the
    forest with all the power.

12
Setting - Horror
  • What does this picture say about the HISTORICAL
    setting?
  • Although this picture appears to be set in the
    distant past, the horrific themes that the
    physical setting contribute suggest that it could
    be a modern adaptation. The clarity in the image
    would also suggest that this picture is quite
    modern.

13
Historical Setting
  • Although this picture appears to be set in the
    distant past, the horrific themes that the
    physical setting contribute suggest that it could
    be a modern adaptation. The clarity in the image
    would also suggest that this picture is quite
    modern.

Generic Conventions Effects
  • From looking at these two pictures, it becomes
    clear that generic conventions have the power to
    suggest two completely different versions of the
    same story. Although the plot may be no different
    in each story, the genre that effects setting can
    provide many different connotations when
    discussing stories and narratives.
